strong. >> but according to excerpts of the speech, almost every policy romney will call for, a two-state solution, free trade, going after terrorists in libya, has been pursued by the obama administration. they're out with an aggressive prebuttle. >> reckless. amateurish. that's what republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled tour of england, israel and poland, when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, showed a lack of presidential character. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> in a statement, liz smith says quote it's clear on every measure, mitt romney fails the commander in chief test. well, just about two hours from now, romney will deliver that speech at virginia military institute. peter alexander is traveling with the romney campaign in lexington, virginia and joins me now and peter, this is a speech that is largely about the middle east. we're not hearing a lot about asia, a lot about russia. this is really going to be focused on syria, iran, libya and afghanistan. is it not? >> yeah, i think you're exactly
account his tenth foreign policy speech of the campaign. romney's forays into foreign policy has been a mixed bag. from his rush to criticize the president on egypt and libya before all the facts were known. >> if you had known that the ambassador had died -- >> i'm not going to take hypotheticals about what would have been known. we responded last night to the events that happened in egypt. >> romney's effort to banish his foreign policy credentials with a summer trip was widely panned after romney seemed to insult the british handling of the olympics. his campaign spent weeks trying to explain why he didn't mention the war in afghanistan in his convention speech. today, romney will try again. arguing quote, i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more pros% middle east allied with the united states. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. it's a message he previewed yesterday on the trail. >> i commit to you i will be a leader. when i'm president, i will take the care that it takes to rebuild our principles and restore the principles that made america so strong. >>
-- at least for a day-- as mitt romney sought to capitalize on new momentum. in a major speech, he challenged president obama's handling of a host of trouble spots. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with us. i hope this hope but hope is not a strategy. >> woodruff: with that mitt romney took aim at foreign policy today in a speech at virginia military institute in lexington, virginia. >> when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region and with violent extremists on the march and with an american ambassador and three others dead likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates it's clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> woodruff: that last point involved the assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi libya and the death of ambassador chris stevens on the night of september 11. the administration initially blamed an anti-muslim film for inciting the trouble. more recently official
. that's what i talked about. a lot of mitt romney, you know, i've listened to a lot of his speeches. he talks about the same thing. this is a foundational election. this is an election about what we are. well, who are we, and i think that's why i put this book out there, talking about who we are as americans, because barack obama has a different vision than our founders' vision of what america is to be, and that's fine. he wants to transform america, but from what to what, and this book answers the question from what, a country that believes in our founding documents of god-given rights and limited government and free people being able to form families and communities and build a great america from the bottom up as opposed to president obama's view which is, no. you know, we can't do that anymore. it's not fair. we need the government to make those decisions and allocate resources and opportunity, not the people. so i think more of that talk, and i think, again, if you listen to romney's speeches, he does talk about those things, but we're trying to reinforce that out among the grass ro
policy speech this week. romney is taking his message to the air waves. >> i think they want to do their best to keep the people of america from understanding exactly what happened. we expect candor, we expect transparency, particularly to terrorism. >> it's hard to understand how mitt romney thinks this strategy is going to work. romney was hammered for his initial response to the attack in the middle east. he blamed the president for sympathizing with protesters. romney is a 14-point disadvantage for terrorist issues. romney can't pick a strategy and stick with it. the campaign, they used to be all about jobs. the romney slogan was obama isn't working. but then all of a sudden, the campaign was about obama care and the slogan was "repeal and replace." then that didn't work so romney moved on to we did build that. while republicans spent a night at their own convention talking about the new strategy, but that didn't work either. so recently they went with "are you better than off than you were four years ago?" but now they are abandoning it for national security message. they are

. some romney advisers to keep the focus on the economy, some are saying romney should have a major foreign policy speech days after the debate. over the weekend, the white house was on the defensive after the friday's announcement that the deadly assault on the u.s. consulate in bengahzi was deliberate and organized. peter king of new york called on susan rice to resign as u.s. ambassador to the united nations after she initially claimed the attack on the consulate was part of the spontaneous protest after an anti-islamic video. yesterday paul ryan and john mccain slammed the administration's handling of the deadly attack. >> the response was slow, confused, inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack if this was one tragic incident that would be a tragedy in itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture that the obama foreign policy is unraveling before our eyes on tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey that al qaeda is on the wane, ever
'm offering. and he was able to control this debate. >> did you think that romney will see a bounce coming out of this, the way that obama had a bounce coming out of the convention, in charlotte, with bill clinton's famous speech? >> he is looking for a comeback moment. what happens next is going to be important. he's going to be giving a speech on foreign policy. he'll be asked about this in interviews in the coming days. if he can build on this, yes. he will start to close the gap. the romney campaign, just happened just at the right moment for them to capitalize on something. knowing you have five weeks left. there's a couple of turns left. >> the next presidential debate, tuesday, october 16th. >> thanks, rick. >> thank you, guys. >>> again, we extend our thanks to rick klein for that. we'll have much more from the abc political team coming up in a little while on "good morning america." >>> now, turning overseas to breaking news from along the border between turkey and syria. for a second-straight day, turkish artillery has opened fire on syria's targets. that's in retaliation for the syr
a speech on that standpoint. but as i've read the excerpts -- and i'm curious, what would governor romney be doing right now different on iran succinctly? i hear you. i just don't know differently -- do you agree with prime minister netanyahu and declare a red line? >> so governor romney believes there have been a lot of mixed messages on iran sent over the last few years. so on the one hand, sanctions have been put in place and have an impact on the economy. on the other hand, the administration fought these sanctions for years. it was only when they were faced with strong bipartisan support for these sanctions, overwhelming bipartisan support, that the administration got on board. they were silent -- >> why? why did they take so long? >> if you look at the letters sent out to capitol hill from secretary geithner, jim steinberg, secothat sanctions w have a devastating on the u.s. economy, global economy, that the sanctions would undermine their diplomatic efforts. >> the timing of the sanctions. you all would have done it much earlier? >> if you look at the sanctions now, the news over t
of hollywood stars including actor george clooney, katie perry, stevie wonder, just to name a few. mitt romney is back in the battleground state of virginia today to deliver a speech on foreign policy at the virginia military institute in lexington. >>> two big tech firms in china are getting the cold shoulder from u.s. lawmakers. the house intelligence committee today releases a report warning american companies they should not do business with two chinese firms. the house panel says the firms pose a threat to national security based on recent cyberattacks traced to china. a maryland congressman spoke out last night on 60 minutes. >> we have evidence that china has been taxing us on a regular basis, even now as we speak that china has been taking a lot of our trade secrets, our papt ents from all of our different companies to do better in competition with us. -- our pat he wants from all of our different companies to do better in competition with us. >>> a shocking discovery in the boston harbor. still ahead, what was found floating in the water. >> a private rocket heads to the space station

are in the works for mitt romney to deliver a major foreign policy speech shortly after wednesday's debate. what do you think of that? you think he should do that? >> yes. i think, as i said, right after the killing, that wasn't the time to talk about this. >> right. >> now is the time, several weeks later, to talk about it. john heilemann, the lead in "the new york times," mistake in faith and security seen at libya mission before benghazi raid. response to the june bomb raised confidence in local guards. this benghazi story is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the
romney here in virginia. virginia military institute. and everything he does is ads, his speeches, his debates are going to be in the frame of here's what the last four years have been like. here's what my four years would be like. because in the ads where in ohio today, romney is saying we can't afford four more years. in doing this story, jim vandehei and i found two rising advisers within the romney camp, senator rob portman who was the stand-in for obama, who played the obama role in debate prep has become a much broader adviser, someone that the president -- someone that romney trusts. and he's given them a lot broader advice about messaging and stagecraft. earlier mika was mentioning -- mika and joe were mentioning romney's family. tag romney, the oldest son, as you guys know, very involved in the 2008 campaign. he's been less day-to-day involved in this campaign because of his business, he's been out raising money. he's taking a more assertive role. we're going to see him, both at headquarters and in messaging. so they're taking a little bit of a rising role. >> and then on the
obamacare when we had 23 million people out of work? >> and last night, mitt romney was asked how he would have responded had the president brought up his hidden camera remarks about the 47%. >> well, clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case, i said something that's completely wrong. i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about 100%. and that's been demonstrated throughout my life and this whole campaign is about the 100%. when i become president, it will be about helping the 100%. >> during wednesday night's debate, mitt romney forcefully defended his tax plan, rejecting the president's claim that his proposal would ultimately raise the tax burden on the middle class. romney has called for cutting income tax rates across the board by 20%, a move some analysts say would cost $5 trillion over a decade. but romney repeatedly rejected that assertion when it was raised by president obama, vowing instead to make up the lost rev
to be careful about that. and the president has to look presidential. he can't let governor romney get under his skin. he can't appear irritable. he certainly can't talk down to him. >> yeah. >> if governor romney given bill clinton's speech and given the bump in the polls and the right track/wrong track stuff has improved. people have sort of come around to thinking that maybe it was a tough four years for anyone. can romney ever make the case that it is still a really bad economy that we're under? this is the worst recession. can he make it without looking nasty? >> i think he's got to make it. i think he's got to get people to look down the road and see the train wreck that's coming. >> not the one we've already had. >> 1.1 trillion in deficits racking up every year. we can run about 200 and keep the debt of gdp constant. which means we have a $900 billion tax increase coming. there's only about $1 trillion of income taxes. these are enormous tax increases that have to come. the president has fought every spending cut that's come along. he has a little bit, $50 billion from seniors and obama
. >> but last night, romney had a complete about face. now he is denouncing that remark all together. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds, if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessns, now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case i said something that's just completely wrong. i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about 100%. and that's been demonstrated throughout my life. and this whole campaign is about the 100%. when i become president, it will be about helping the 100%. >> cnn political editor paul steinhauser joins me now in washington. romney chose to clarify his remark on fox. no accident there perhaps. >> he was doing an interview there last night with his running mate, paul ryan. i think what you heard last night was the answer mitt romney would have given in the presidential debate wednesday night if he had been asked by president obama or the moderator about it. they were prepared to talk about the 47% number controversy in the debate. the president never brought it up. it didn't come up in the debat
about mitt romney has to drop his line about the 8 plus percent from his campaign speeches, how much does that hurt him? >> as i said, he's been saying 8%. the president has been promising 8%. he hasn't delivered. that's one of the main attacks governor romney has been using, he's been bringing up that number repeatedly on the campaign trail. yesterday what you saw was the governor sort of switched and talking about 11% number which is the number if everybody was still looking -- the amount of people still looking for jobs from 2008 were looking now it would would be 11. he's going to say we haven't done enough. president obama acknowledged that in his remarks saying what we've been doing month after month, we're making headway, adding jobs each month but we haven't done enough. >> susan, back to wednesday night here. there's a new report on the president's assessment of his own doe bait performance. here's what glen thrush writes in politico "at first obama didn't think his performance was a complete disaster. but he began seriously mourning by watching excerpts of his own tentative

debate between president obama and governor mitt romney. why tonight's showdown in denver may be so critical to their hopes for november. and we'll also hear from both sides. and why a fiery speech by president obama is setting off media fireworks five years later. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're counting down to the crucial first debate between barack obama and mitt romney. our live coverage begins in two hours. much more on that just ahead. but right now there's breaking news we're following. the united states is closely watching the latest developments in the middle east where the nato ally, turkey, has fired on targets inside syria after the deadly shelling of a turkish border town. cnn senior international correspondent ivan watson is joining us on the phone now from istanbul. it's not every day, ivan, that a nato ally, in this particular case turkey, is drawn into potentially another war with a neighbor, syria, what happened? >> reporter: well, in the afternoon on wednesday mo
, too, do you think that romney will see a bounce coming out of this, the way obama had a bounce coming out of the convention and bill clinton's famous speech? >> you need a story to change if you are mitt romney. he is primed for a comeback moment. what happens next is going to be important. how does he follow up on this. he's giving a speech on foreign policy. going to be asked about this in interviews. if he can build on momentum a little. yes expect that he begins to close the gap. positive signs in battleground states. so the romney campaign just happened at the right moment for them to capitalize on something. knowing you have five weeks left, knowing that there's still a couple turns left. >> i can't believe, well, we have 33 days left. five weeks and counting. >> coming soon. >>> celebrity cat fights are nothing new. >>> celebrity cat fights are nothing new. a new one involving a well-known tv actor and famous rock 'n' roller. >> abc's nick watt reports the fight is over a fallen tree. ♪ despite all my rage >> reporter: living next to smashing pumpkins billy corgan noise would
going into this debate on domestic policy, romney with an op-ed on foreign policy, already information he's going to give this big speech when so many times you and i have had strategists as a part of this panel and they say he wants to talk about the economy, not by any stretch of the imagination say what's happening in afghanistan or libya should be diminished but the domestic policy issue, getting people to work, that is supposed to be governor romney's a game. >> but it hasn't played so well particularly in the afternoon math of the 47% comment. i think they sense weakness given what transpired in libya. i heard earlier today, paul ryan talk about how we're pulling out of afghanistan at a time when troops are getting killed. if what he's saying is we should be saying and beefing up our support there, i think that's the wrong conclusions. most americans say let's get the hell out even sooner than we forecast. >> i'm going to ask only steve this question, "the washington post" debate question, who will win the debate, obama or romney? you only give one choice. >> i think if romney is
noonan's convention speech, he became himself again, it transformed him, and he beat dukakis. this was mitt romney not trying to be the man of the people. this was mitt romney being who -- an extraordinarily successful guy throughout life. >> i have a general rule about this. warm usually beats cold in these debates. and it was very striking to me, i was watching it on my clock, that it took obama over a half an hour before he mentioned an actual individual human being. everything was abstract. in romney's first answer, he was talking about the person that he just met in milwaukee and another person he met here. romney was actually warmer than obama last night. >> and what a coincidence that he talked about meeting a person in a swing state he has to win. the stars were just lined up last night. >> toledo. >> it reminds me of the nice little cashier i met in toledo. >> yes. >> do you not think that one of the more interesting story lines today and for the next two weeks is how does the obama campaign react to what happened last night in. >> oh, absolutely. >> we're going to f
for the president no matter what. >> reporter: with an obama campaign ad still repeating those remarks, romney tried to put an end to the controversy once and for all on fox. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds, if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you are going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case, i said something that's just completely wrong. >> reporter: democrats maintain that tone deafness extends from main street to sesame street. so obama aides sent a protester in a big bird outfit to romney's event in virginia to mock his call to end funding for pbs. romney will spend part of his weekend in florida, back in debate prep. the other part hitting the president once again on the economy. as one senior romney adviser put it, weak job growth should not be the new normal. jim acosta, cnn, st. petersburg, florida. >>> speaking of mitt romney, taking the stage in florida shortly for a rally. we may dip in and listen to mr. romney during this hour but you can watch the entire event by logging on to cnn.com. >>> a legal system nightmare. t
